Hi, I’m Albie!
My passion for decoding spaces is the culmination of nearly a decade of retail visual merchandising and freelance marketing. Using my experience of space design and storytelling, I launched an online interior design and concierge shopping service. What was once a curated, bi-monthly decor subscription box, Decor Discovery, has evolved into an online inspiration destination for decor styling and shopping centered around my blog, video, and social media content.
For years, I worked as a self-proclaimed “silent salesperson” -- I was a retail visual merchandiser -- translating brands’ visions into something tangible and ultimately, transactional. My marketing degree taught me how to "sell" brands, while my actual job taught me how to "sell" lifestyles -- all by telling a story!
When I decided to make the natural transition from product presentation into interior design, I was substituting fixtures for furniture & apparel for accents, all as another form of storytelling.
Your space...you want it to reflect you, and the people & things you hold dear to you. You want to fit design into your life, not the other way around. You want it to tell your story!
I know what it's like to have a lot of things in the air -- personally and professionally -- while trying to turn your house/apartment/condo/etc. into a home. I know what it's like to have to prioritize tasks to be tackled & money to be spent, because in addition to creating beautiful spaces & helping other designpreneurs navigate the inner workings of being an online designer (it's kinda my jam) I'm a military wife & toddler mom.
Fall of 2016, we moved from NYC to Washington state with nothing but our clothes & her toys. Literally, the only piece of furniture we brought with us was a console desk from IKEA that has served as my desk, bar console, and now bedroom vanity. #UPCYCLE.
Interior design is more than a style…
it’s a lifestyle!
As both a designer and stylist, I specialize in connecting my decor-obsessed audience with beautiful pieces and functional design to transform their ordinary spaces into extraordinary dreamscapes. With an exceptional eye for online re-design and vignette styling, I have had the honor of working with clients and brands all over the country through the power of online interior design.
After nearly three years of serving others through the power of online interior design, I have expanded my passion for designpreneurship in the digital space by founding The Design Influence, a podcast and online community tailored to support the needs of designers looking to better navigate the online space for their businesses.
Now I wanna know what story you're telling!
Stop me when I'm wrong...
you’ve read the blogs, pinned the inspiration, binge-watched the shows... and now you're ready for your own dreamscape!
you're a self-designated design enthusiast so you aren't afraid of designing on your own but struggle with finding your starting point
For some, hiring a designer to do all the heavy lifting is exactly what they need but if that's not where you are, that's okay too!
I’m a self-taught interior designer, and while this is my career and passion, that wasn’t always the case. I was just a girl who knew that if she wanted to be happy in her space, she was going to have to create that happiness. And I’ve been doing exactly that in every home, every season of life.
